Adobe has purchased Mettle which is great if you are an existing Adobe CC subscriber. It means you get the entire Mettle Skybox Suite, like Skybox 360/VR, for free as a part of your subscription! I unfortunately ran into an issue while installing the plugins. They either didn’t show up or displayed an error. Here’s how to solve it.
While updating my Adobe CC applications from CC 2015 to CC 2017, I noticed a new product was available named, “Project Felix”. I checked the “More Information” link and to my delight it was a new 3D application! Here’s my hands-on review and first experience using Adobe Project Felix.
Securing your website with an SSL certificate is a smart idea. While it used to mean paying lots of money annually, you now can do it yourself for FREE. Here’s how to create free SSL certificate using a real Certificate Authority.
I’m in my local Starbucks redecorating their store with my own pictures. Management would typically not appreciate patrons hanging their own vacation pictures on their walls, placing dinosaurs on the tables, or leaving a 6 foot long shark to guard the Employees Only door, but I’m wearing Microsoft’s Hololens.
I opened a Unity project on another computer, and got a message that the lighting in my scene was built with a different version of Unity than I was using. I searched the forums and Answer section but found nothing useful. I was using version Unity 5.4.0b17 on my laptop, and opened it using version 5.4.0b22-HTP (for HoloLens development) on my desktop. The scene opened up without any details, just a yellow screen.
I was going through the Tanks tutorial and luckily the instructor had mentioned “Auto Build”. Here’s how to solve it.
So my Microsoft HoloLens arrived this week and I haven’t been this excited since I got my first Nintendo. I placed the order on Thursday, and it was at my door, straight from China, by Tuesday. I was a part of the 3rd wave (developers are receiving the device in waves as they become available) and was scheduled to get mine around September/October. This was an awesome surprise!
My house now looks like something out of a video game with holograms hanging around everywhere and after using it for a few days it’s starting to dawn on me just how revolutionary this is.
After testing how to convert VMware virtual machines to Microsoft Hyper-V, I ended up getting a very annoying message when starting VMware Workstation. Here’s how to fix the problem.
What used to be limited to the Linux & OSX crowd, is [finally] available on good ‘ole Windows. We only had to wait 20 years for it. Yes, I know there were alternative Explorer shells, but most were pretty buggy, and I prefer native features. After you get used to having virtual desktops, it becomes hard to work without them. Here’s how to use virtual desktops on Windows.
We can all appreciate the benefits of security updates in Windows, but for system administrators, it means routinely checking what the update breaks. If you’ve carefully read through the release notes and checked them against your custom configurations, upgrades can be a minor annoyance, but manageable. The fun is when upgrades break stuff and instead of working on your projects you need to search blogs like mine for a solution.
I fired up a Virtual Machine that I’d created months ago to update a Let’s Encrypt certificate and noticed that the date showed as January, but it was actually April. This particular VM didn’t have VMWare Tools installed [yet] so it wasn’t picking up on the host’s time. It’s no problem to fix, just update the time using NTP.
